All my paid apps crash when I choose to unmount my external SD card in storage settingsznd cease to function until a full reboot is finished, regardless of whether I re-mount the card or not. if any paid apps are still in memory and were not. closed completely before entering the settings app, the device will forcibly reboot itself.

This only started happening after accepting the OTA update to Android 4.1.1 on my XOOM WiFi US.

There is a description of the problem and research about the cause here. post?p=28939625

- Steps to reproduce the problem.
Install Paid App from Google Play Store.
Insert SD Card into slot.
Unmount SD Card from Settings/Storage

- What happened.
Immediately received message: "Unfortunately, com.touchtype.swiftkey.tablet.full has stopped."
When tapping on text field nothing happens until a full reboot completes.
When tapping on other paid apps like SDCard XD, receive similar message: "Unfortunately, com.gmanapps.sdcardx has stopped."

- What you think the correct behavior should be.
Paid apps like Swiftkey and SDCardXD should continue to run normally after SD Card is unmounted since they are not installed or running from the SD card.

I have a Motorola Xoom WiFi US that has just accepted the OTA update to Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean

I have exactly the same problem on my Acer Iconia A700 tablet. It's not rooted or anything!

Same issue here, on wikipad and 4.1.1  Funny thing is that this just started happening,  as in this used to work just fine a month ago.  Ai keyboard stops, be weather stops etc.  Have to power down and  reboot.

same issue with stock droid DNA, have to reboot after external memory unmount is performed. get constant dialog that affected apps no working until a reboot is done. Paul's apps that fail are Swype and beautiful widget live wallpaper.
